Re: release 2.08 mystery

Hi YOF,

 

Usually, with the beta updates, I wait for the pop up prompt which should appear on your computer a short time after the annoucment / release, and upgrade from there.  No need to reboot, reinstall, or any of that drama, and it's not failed me yet.

 

If you're seeing unusual issues, then please report these through the F-Secure Beta website, attaching an FSDIAG, if appropriate. 

 

Just a thought, though, did you fully uninstall your previous F-Secure installation when you moved to the Beta?

Just to clarify, we're talking about TP108, yes? Not sure what you mean by '2.08'.

sorry, you are right: I mistyped it and didn't notice it afterwards, it's TP108

Hi

 

You can not upgrade the software by running the installer again. When you run the installer, it just validates your subscription. I understand that this is confusing but it has to work this way due to other use cases, which are not valid in beta.

 

You can only upgrade it by waiting for the upgrade prompt or by uninstalling and reinstalling completely.

Re: release 2.08 mystery

thank you for this explanation, you're right: I was confused as this is unusual, I didn't meet this when testing either NIS 2014 nor Bullguard IS 2014 or using other software.

Glad to have learned something today.
